Coldplay! and CIA Stuff
Coldplay was unbelievable. The above shot was taken before Coldplay took the stage at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Shelby County Alabama. I would pay good money to see them again right now. I recorded about 4 songs on my Blackberry, but I will not subject you to those poor quality videos. But here's a live video from another person at a concert on this tour in Tokyo. What an evening. Balloons and all.
Chris Martin makes a big deal out of bass guitarist Guy Berryman's hot looks and says he's the reason they are so successful, he draws the teen age girls and all the gay guys. Read it here at Towleroad. Or, just gaze at these pictures from that site.
Guy is second from the right in this photo.
The CIA and Pelosi
Ok here's a thought about the CIA and Nancy Pelosi. First, it is no where near as important what Pelosi knew and when as it is to determine and hold accountable those who authorized and commanded that torture take place.
Second of all, the CIA has a mission and to carry out that mission involves espionage and spy techniques. In order to do that, they lie. Being a spy means you have to lie about who you are and what you do. Since the CIA lies to fulfill its mission, why should we believe that the CIA would not lie to make itself look better?
Third, I don't like plagiarism, and although I usually enjoy Maureen Dowd and her columns, she's been caught. Read this. She used the words of TPM's Josh Marshall. Poor excuse, Maureen.
